I do have problem with my newly installed CorelDraw X5. Before X5 we used Corel 12 in our company.
I have project file (150 MB) with lots of text, bitmaps, vectors - about 100 pages. File opens but I can't save it. I always get OUT OF MEMORY error. I even tried to divide this file into 2 smaller parts but still doesn't work.
What I noticed - Corel X5 after clean start (without opened project) takes about 80MB of RAM in task manager. When I open project usage changes from 80MB to 1,2GB. While saving it takes 1,6GB of RAM and it crashes.
To compare - Corel 12 and after opening same project file Corel 12 takes much less of memory - about 770MB and it works without problem.
Where from comes this memory usage difference? Any solutions?
Windows 7 - 32bit
4GB of RAM
Intel Core2Duo 2 x 3.0GHz
700GB free space on drive C:
Please help. I've read milion other posts about corel memory errors and noting workes for me :( I have no hope :(
Surely there seems to be some corrupt data that has saved with the V12 file. Check for unwanted color styles, views and unused but saved text / graphics styles. Remove unwanted data. you can remove color styles at one click only if you have installed the latest service pack. I also have seen this issue with some corrupted fonts used in the file.
Hello michasiek; You might want to make sure that you do not have any other programs running when you open a file that is that large. cut back on the things Windows uses ram for.
My Thoughts George
what suggestions given by you are not suitable. Its consuming absolutely high memory and even files are not opening sometimes. There is a very big problem with X5.
I know it well and agree with you that this is a serious issue. My suggestions are purely based on my own experiences. I was successful in solving most of the issues, though not all, with 'out of memory' errors with the suggestions I have mentioned. This definitely does not mean that every file would open by following my suggestions. It would depend on each individual file, its contents, workflow used by the user, and in some cases the hardware.
There's no harm in trying the suggestions. Right ?

Hello pkg; What Anand & I are saying is that these are things that could slow down a program and even make it crash, I know that X5 is going to use more ram than ver. 12 ( it does more, uses more ram ) a lot of people run Corel on small systems, but when you start asking a program to do a lot of work you need a system that will carry the load. Windows 32 bit systems will only use 3 gig of ram and when you are letting the CPU do the video it cuts down on whats left. I use X4 on a Vista 32 bit system with only 2 gig of ram ( works fine & fast ) but I don't ask the computer to do a lot else while I'm using heavy programs. ( No gadgets, or fancy icons, or load programs with Windows start up, ect. )
